Nancy Pelosi defended Rashida Tlaib after the freshman congresswoman said Democrats were “going to impeach the motherf—er.” “I don’t think it’s anything worse than what the president has said,” Pelosi said on Friday. Tlaib faced some backlash after the statement from some Republicans and the president himself.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi doesn’t have a problem with the profanity-laced call for impeachment freshman congresswoman Rashida Tlaib directed at President Donald Trump.

“I probably have a generational reaction it, but in any event I’m not in the censorship business,” she told Joy Reid at an MSNBC Town Hall on Friday. “I don’t like that language, I wouldn’t use that language, I don’t again establish any language standards for my colleagues. But I don’t think it’s anything worse than what the president has said.”See the rest of the story at Business Insider
